Local developer Sam Chang has completed another hospitality project in Midtown West, located at 324 West 44th Street. Based in Long Island City, McSam Hotel Group is one of the largest hotel developers in New York City with over 20 properties across the five boroughs.
The hotel occupies a through-block lot from 44th to 43rd Streets, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. McSam partnered with M&R Hotel Group to lease the lot for $775,000 last year, the Commercial Observer reported in November 2015.
The Gene Kaufman-designed hotel will debut as Marriott TownPlace Suites, offering 114 rooms, and it measures just under 45,000 square feet in all. Many of the guestrooms will include private terraces. Building amenities include a rooftop patio, fitness center, and a landscaped courtyard.
